  • Blues prospect camp started yesterday. Here's Hildy's original post about the camp. Our Prospect Department is on the scene. [SLGT]
  • The more I read Bernie Miklasz's piece on T.J. Oshie from Saturday, the more I think he doesn't believe a Goddamn thing he wrote (or said in the video embedded in said post). Here's my original takedown of the piece. [SLGT]
  • As for Oshie? Well, aside from taking a new number in Washington, he surprised a young fan of his. [SLGT]
  • Balls. [SLGT]


  • Fuck the Blackhawks, but Scott Darling and his father getting tattoos celebrating the Cup win? Awesome. [Puck Daddy]
  • Johnny Oduya and Marcus Kruger are waiting for cap space that the Blackhawks probably won't be able to get without slashing more payroll from the roster. Well that's adorable. [Chicago Tribune]
  • Nazem Kadri will get a bit over $4MM from the Maple Leafs next season. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • Meanwhile, Rich Clune will play in his hometown of Toronto next year after signing an AHL deal with the Marlies. [Sportsnet]
  • Game 7 hero (in the first round, anyway) Evgeny Kuznetsov signed a two-year RFA contract with the Capitals yesterday. [TSN]
  • Dylan Strome inked an entry-level deal with the Phoenix Arizona Seattle Las Vegas Not Glendale Coyotes. [Coyotes]
  • The Oilers acquired goaltender Anders Nilsson from the Blackhawks. We presume he will be the backup to Cam Talbot next season, if Ben Scrivens isn't. [USA Today]
  • While things are going well for a possible Las Vegas NHL expansion, the same can't be said for a Kansas City NHL expansion. [KC Star]
  • Jamaica iced a U-18 squad over the weekend. And look at those uniforms . . . beauties! [The Color of Hockey]


  • A bear at the Minnesota Zoo plotted its' escape by doing something many of us would've done to shoplift as kids . . . throwing a rock at the window. (S/T to BluesMay) [Minnesota Public Radio]
  • Bubble wrap that doesn't pop should just be called Bagged Air. Fuck this. [Nerdist]
  • Bob Ross permed his hair, but he didn't like to. So why did he keep doing it? [Mental Floss]
  • Here's raw audio of Dale Earnhardt, Jr. just before and in the moments after that massive wreck that ended Sunday's Coca-Cola 400 in Daytona Beach. His immediate reaction is not unusual, but priceless. "Oh my fucking God did you see that shit?!" [Deadspin / Screengrabber]
  • Salvador Perez had a little fun with a rain-induced flood that occurred at the home dugout of Kauffman Stadium last night. [Deadspin]
  • A communion wafer made of quinoa? That's happening, and the producer hopes Pope Francis gets to have one. [Y! / Reuters]




So, just to let you all know . . . we'll be going to a three-day-a-week links schedule for the rest of the offseason. NORMALLY (aka "when I don't forget to fucking post links on Monday"), this will be a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule. This week, it won't be. It'll be Tuesday-Wednesday-Friday.

Anyway. Send me your links and videos for Wednesday. You know what to do:

  • gtdonutking AT gmail DOT com
  • @KingDonutI
  • And check back later today for Episode 93 of Beyond Checkerdome. One of us goes off on Bernie Miklasz worse than I did on Saturday . . . verbally. Be sure to check it out.
